Are you looking for a weight gain shake that doesn’t contain peanut butter? Maybe you have an allergy to peanuts or just want to switch things up?

Then our almond butter weight gain shake is for you. It’s easy to make, super tasty, and jam packed with calories. Over 1,000 calories to be exact.

Nut Butters and Weight Gain

Nut butters are excellent for weight gain. Nuts are high in calories and heart healthy fats. This is why you traditionally see peanut butter in high calorie recipes. It adds a punch of calories. Is heart healthy. And even has some protein!

While this recipe is focused on almond butter*, you can use any of these nut butters as a substitution:

Almond butter contains just over 1,500 calories per cup. That’s a lot! Now eating that much nut butter in one sitting isn’t very realistic. Our recipe uses 1/4 cup of almond butter.

For reference, most nut butters contain the same amount of calories per volume.

The Best Blenders

When I make shakes and smoothies, I find that having a good blender is key. A strong blender saves you time and frustration trying to get your shake to mix well.

My favorite blender of all time is my Vitamix*. It is so powerful you can even make your own almond butter from whole almonds for this recipe.

Another blender I really like is the Magic Bullet*. You can make a single serving shake. And serve it in the same container you blended it in!

For this recipe, the shake won’t fit in one cup. So, you would have to cut the recipe in half if you make it in the Magic Bullet. But, it is still a great kitchen appliance!

When to Drink Weight Gain Shakes

We recommend drinking weight gain shakes in-between meals. If you drink one with a meal you may get so full that you can’t finish your nutritious meal.

Now if you have a poor appetite and can’t eat a full meal, you can certainly drink your shakes at any time or in replacement of a meal.

Spreading out how much you eat throughout the day is ideal. Think of this as six small meals or 3 meals plus 2-3 snacks per day. This ensures you get the most amount of calories in a day.
